Danny Pro, founder of Misjif Motors had his first interaction with Local Motors years ago at the Pebble Beach Concours D'elegance. Jay Rogers walked into Danny's mobile fine art gallery as he was packing up for the week. After a brief exchange, Jay complimented Danny's artwork and said he would be in touch.
A few weeks later, Jay reached out to Danny to tell him more about Local Motors; and invited the automotive artist to design sconces inspired by the not yet built off-road beast we now call the Local Motors Rally Fighter. Danny only had computer images to work with but that's all he needed.
Danny describes the center of the sconce as a replica of the P-51 Mustang Jet (also the main inspiration of the Rally Fighter), and explains that the three beads represent the three guns of the fighter jet. The top of the board mimics the back end of the Rally Fighter and the red flag matches the red flag on the P-51.
After a few months of being displayed with the "Beta" Rally Fighter, Local Motors officially purchased the sconces and now displays the art at the Phoenix micro-factory.
Just a few months away from graduating automotive school, Danny looks forward to training at BMW in California this summer and hopes to work full time as an auto technician while still keeping up his artistic passion.

Best of luck Danny, its an honor having your artwork as a part of the history of Local Motors!
